We had excellent ties with Finnish poets by now, and published three more of them in this issue: Vilho Kajava, Arvo Turtiainen, and Eeva-Liisa Manner. We also published an anthology of Canadian poetry which included, among others, George Bowering, Lionel Kearns, Fred Wah, Victor Coleman, John Newlove, David McFadden, Daphne Buckle, Frank Davey and Red Lane.
Twenty contemporary Spanish poets included Angel Gonzalez, Carlos Alvarez, Jose Agustin Goytisolo, Jaime Gil de Biedma, Jose Angel Valente, and Jose Batllo.
This issue also presented work by Allen Ginsberg, Paul Blackburn, Miguel Barnet, Eleanor Antin, and Besmilr Brigham.
All the drawings in El Corno 19 were by Felipe Ehrenberg, and the cover art was a painting by Willem de Kooning.
